Most international students are not entitled to publicly funded health services while in New Zealand. If you receive
medical treatment during your visit, you may be liable for the full costs of that treatment. Full details on entitlements
to publicly-funded health services are available through the Ministry of Health, and can be viewed on their website

Please note that non-disclosure of pre-existing conditions can have an impact on Insurance coverage and may lead to
non-coverage of certain medical treatments. A disclosure does not necessarily mean that student may not be enrolled
in the programme but it helps to know the differences in medication between New Zealand and their home country
before the student arrives.
The student must hold adequate medical and travel insurance throughout his/her period of enrolment and any
extensions. AGI cannot be held responsible for any sickness, injury, death, damage or loss incurred either outside of
